"Billboard Project Features Tighty-whitey by David Wityk"
2003-04-11 until 2003-05-30
Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to announce a new artwork for our Osborne Village billboard. Tighty-whitey, by David Wityk, is an amusing effort to “dress” our signage in the ubiquitous Y-front underpants recently revived by style gurus such as Calvin Klein, Hilfiger, and Prada.
From the fashion magazine spread to the runway to the stage, this once-purely practical garment has been elevated to sex-symbol and superstar status. Wityk is completing his final year in photography at the University of Manitoba School of Art. Wityk’s photos were exhibited this March in the photography thesis show, Timelines, at Floating Gallery, Winnipeg. For more information, please contact Plug In at 942-1043.
